"'I beg you to take revenge . . . '
The readers of the letter from Spanish martyr, Bartolome Marquez, were shocked to see a call for revenge in his final letter. Then they saw that his call was not for human bloodshed to avenge him, but for more people to come under the blood of Jesus.
'I beg you to take Christian revenge by trying to do good to those who do me evil,' Marquez challenged other believers. 'I hope to see you where I will be soon, in heaven.'
The Spanish Communists killed Marquez, along with many other pastors, in 1939. His final letter was an epistle of joy to his wife and Christian brothers and sisters."
